You can customise the single page "page_not_found" to display more than just the error message, and can specify it's theme using the site config.

However if you wish to redirect a deleted page's URL to somewhere else, just edit the new target's properties and set the old canonical name in the target's aliases.

hi jaredquinn, thank for the reply.
i will use the first solution.

i found page_not_found.php on /concrete/single page, is that you mean i must modify?

thanks.

Yes, you need to do 2 things to modify this page.

1) Copy it out of the concrete directory to /single_pages and edit it there (so you don't overwrite the core).

2) If you want to apply your own theme to it, then you must add the theme and page to /config/site_theme_paths.php. Instructions are in the file.

I had the same problem as Follow Me. I followed the "best answer" recommendation of Jared Quinn. Worked like a charm. As a newbie I thought the 'page not found' error might mean I had broken something. I had accomplished what I had desired to do--redirect the page--but didn't know that I needed to edit the page_not_found php in order to announce that a page was under construction. Successfully negotiating this gave me a profound feeling of accomplishment. Thanks, Jared!

Hi,

I want to redirect visitors from "the page not found" page to the homepage. But I don't know where I can find the "new target" property, after having copied the page into the single pages folder.

Glad for advice,

thanks in advance,

Lovic
